Midgard Surprise surprises everyone, positively! Weather, road conditions and our guide’s expertise determine our “mystery” routing.
Popular routes go deep into absorbing Þórsmörk, offering extraordinary encounters with raw, remote nature. Passing under Eyjafjallajökull’s roots, crossing glacial rivers, viewing Gígjökull, all is exhilarating.
Eyjafjallajökull’s summit crater (active in 2010) offers spectacular views into Iceland’s interior, surrounding icecaps and towards the Westman Islands.
Another possible destination is Landmannalaugar. Once there you will encounter a remote and rugged volcanic landscape of orange & cream (rhyolite), blue and green mountains. Sitting atop the Mid Atlantic Ridge, natural hot springs abound.
A fourth option is the impressive coastline with its thunderous waterfalls, towering ice caps, black sand beaches and glistening glaciers!
